(Forgot to answer this earlier.) We're using devfs on the nodes,
without devfsd, it seems to work fine.

how /tmp is mounted with this package ?
/tmp is shared and read-only. That's a good point, maybe it should be
a symlink to /var/tmp?
Another idea: the diskless-newimage script could prompt for local disk
and swap mount points (or diskless-newhost in case they will be
different for different hosts), and create swap and /scratch entries in
fstab, then if /scratch(es) exist, ask whether to symlink /tmp to
/scratch/tmp or /var/tmp (since read-only /tmp is kinda not so helpful).
Running "diskless" with disks on the machines would still be
advantageous for management reasons, but the disks could provide helpful
caches such as /tmp and for filesystems like AFS, Coda/InterMezzo, etc.
